The Tulsa Drillers will resume their longest homestand of the season when they host the Wichita Wind Surge on Tuesday, June 14 in game one of a seven-game series. The Drillers will host the Wind Surge for seven games in six days with the series concluding on Sunday, June 19.
It will be Wichita’s first visit to Tulsa this season. The two teams have played a pair of series in Wichita with the Drillers winning five of the eight games to take and early lead in the Coors Light Propeller Series between the two teams. The set will conclude a stretch of 15 games in 15 days at ONEOK Field.
The Tuesday opener will begin at 7:05 p.m. and will be followed by a doubleheader on Wednesday, June 15 with the first game starting at 4:35 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday night’s games will all start at 7:05 p.m. and the finale on Sunday the 19th will start at 1:05 p.m.
The promotion schedule for the homestand will open with $2 Tuesday on June 14. The doubleheader on Wednesday, June 15 will give fans the chance to bring their dogs to the park with another Paws and $3 White Claws night.
Thirsty Thursday will return on June 16 with $1 hot dogs, followed by FOX23 Friday Night Fireworks on June 17. It will also be Star Wars Night on Friday with the Drillers wearing Galactic Basic jerseys that will be available for purchase in a silent auction that will take place during the game.
NewsChannel 8 Grand Slam Saturday on June 18 will also feature a post-game Fireworks Show, and Drillers players will wear T-Towns Clowns jerseys in honor of Tulsa’s historic Negro league team and the Juneteenth Celebration.
The series will wrap up on Father’s Day on June 19 with Family FUNday Sunday. All kids will be able to eat free of charge and the first 500 fathers will receive an Academy Sports & Outdoors gift card. Before the game, kids and the fathers can go into the outfield to play catch together.
A complete list of promotions is below.
The Wednesday doubleheader was necessitated when the two teams were rained out earlier this season in Wichita. The second game of the doubleheader will be considered the makeup with the Wind Surge serving as the home team.
This season marks the second year of the Coors Light Series between the Drillers and Wind Surge. The Propeller Trophy is presented to the team that wins the regular season series between the two teams. Last year, Wichita claimed the trophy by winning the final meeting of the season, and the Propeller Trophy currently resides in Riverfront Stadium.
